Sculpture Capital of Canada: Castlegar, BC

With a population that is 7,000 strong, the community of Castlegar harbours a deeply rooted desire to nurture burgeoning artists, all while encouraging enthusiasts to take it outside.

Castlegar’s Sculpturewalk is the ‘Sculpture Capital of Canada’; a collection of local and international works artfully displayed throughout the city’s parks and plazas.  They welcome art-minded visitors and locals out-of-doors to view these one-of-a-kind and sometimes, surprising sculptures.
